Once a tree or large shrub has been felled, stump grinding is a fast and effective way of removing the remaining stump below ground level. There are many reasons why people may have stumps removed:
- To make space where trees once were ‘re-useable’ space
- To replant or reinstate a lawn or driveway where a tree once was
- To stop tree stumps sprouting and re-growing
Quotations are based on the amount of time a stump/stumps will take to grind out. AA Tree Surgeons Ltd quote for the removal of individual stumps or multiples of stumps taking into consideration the tree species (different trees have differing wood density), how deep you would like it ground out to, its location and ease of access.
When required AA Tree Surgeons Ltd use a CAT & Genny to access for any underground services which could run close to the stump. However, it is advisable for the client to advise us of any underground services near the stump prior to starting the job.
After stump grinding, the spoil which consists of soil and woodchip is backfilled into the hole made by the grinder. Any excess spoil can be removed on request. The spoil is good for garden composting, mulch material of borders and vegetable plots. The site is always left clean and tidy when the job is completed. Any remaining roots or stump that are left behind will gradually rot away underground without disrupting any of the surrounding area.
AA Tree Surgeons Ltd undertake all types of stump removal from individual small tree stumps within residential gardens to large stumps within paved areas requiring surveying for underground utilities and services.
